  1. best way to acquire spare nuts + bolts + doodads you didn’t know you had!
  2. It really is a pain as that part of the rev range is the ‘cruising’ section. And also around-town-manoeuvring. Forgive me if this is being thick, but is this all tied to the tps base setting? I’m wondering if I got around the issue a few years back by setting the tps base setting a bit lower, or higher, than 157mv
  3. Worth a bash though. I’m wondering what the hiccup or cough or spit is? Like what’s happening? It kind of feels like a pulse back thru the intake… Is it an intake shockwave, or some unburnt fuel popping into the exhaust? My current V11 has it around the 2750 mark; I recall getting my old bike to occasionally run very buttery without any pops whatsoever… buggered it i can remember how i dialled it out though!
  4. If you’re suspension is smooth and compliant… you’re riding a different bike 😀
  5. Mine broke too. I used a stainless 60mm cap-head screw for a couple years 🙂
  6. there were 5 on sale on ebay quite recently.
  7. Could the TPS have been knocked out of whack??
  8. Yes i too thought the early bikes had slightly narrower forks- i’ve already put off one chap who asked on faceache whether they’d fit his early model.

    Decent Tune-up

    Er, into a multimeter set to dc? Sorry- i feel i’m misunderstanding the question 😆
  10. why do you want to edit it? is it incorrect?
  11. it offers these options: PSD, PDF, PNG, TIFF, JPG, plus some animated options. I have no idea what all this means.
  12. yes it does! i can’t post directly as i can’t be arsed to figure that out. but i’ll email it to you if you like 😬
  13. err, let me just check that fella...
  14. That sir, is a question! 02 is right around the bitsa years. Do you have the 54mm forks?
  15. Haha! Nay bother brother! send me an email and i’ll ping it over to thee x The monza is comparatively simples compared to other models; Originally I only needed to figure out how the winkers worked...
  16. Great, nice one docc, we got there in the end! Hope it’s useful to you fine gentlemen (and ladies- are there any lassies on here?) P.S. I’ve also done a coloured V50/Monza diagram if anyone needs it.
  17. Sorry doc- it’s bigger than the 200kb limit... we need an egghead to help out on this one!
  18. Hey Docc, it’s on procreate but can be exported as jpg or pdf or most anything by looks of it. I can email it to you if you like in either format? I’m so behind with computer stuff- rather unacceptable in these times for someone my age!
  19. Well if someone more knowledgeable can give me pointers, I’ll upload the file to our forum for what it’s worth 🙂
  20. Clips for the later 54mm forks. These are the ‘high rise’ units so when set under the yolk you still get a fair bit of up/down adjustment for comfort or otherwise. Good serviceable condition £70 plus postage. (Not far off half price for new)
  21. gstallions- well i originally started drawing it out with pen and pencil crayons... then made a couple mistakes... so photo’d what i’d done and went into procreate and finished the job there. so i now have a digi copy that zoomz in and out. ace.
  22. I’ve just found the link to this old tractor’s page... doh! There’re full colour copies of, what looks like, every model! I would say I wasted my time drawing up my own haha, but it certainly improved my knowledge!
  23. Evening All! So I had a little wiring issue with my wee Monza, and decided to draw out a coloured wiring diagram to gain some control over the problem. Went marvellously- all sorted now yay. I ended up enjoying it so much that I decided to draw out the V11 diagram in colour too. So, if any of you fine gentlemen would like a copy of this let me know. It’s been a tough year, that’s for sure, so no charge for this unless you’re feeling flush and want to punt a few quid my way. I’ve gained enough from this forum over the past few years not to feel greedy at all. Looking at a coloured diagram makes a tonne of difference. Anyway, let me know if you’d like a copy. 🙂 Stew
  24. One easy check is the exhaust system itself. Especially check that either the port gaskets are a: present and, if so, b: not mullered. I only mention as my monza was baking on one side and it turned out the gaskets had perished- one side pretty much awol which resulted in a dreadful air leak.
